Hi guys. So I have reached the final part of this course. When I try to view my page I get a github 404 error page… basically stating the following.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can fix this?

This is a late response, but I just completed the course and had a similar issue. My problem was I didn’t name my repository myname.github.io, so I had to remove what I had put in the cmd line earlier and redo the entire process.
